Nurturing the potential of every child and teen.
We believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for life. At the Y, children and teens learn values and positive behaviors that makes for confident kids today and contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.
OUR Y IS CELEBRATING 30 YEARS!
In 1986, an interim board of directors was formed and unanimously voted to take the first step in developing a YMCA in the Greater Marshfield Community. Thus began the Marshfield Area YMCA who will celebrate their 30th anniversary in 2016 with a year of community, celebration and impact.
Special dates, photos and stories chronicling the Y’s history will be featured on the Marshfield Area YMCA facility walls in the upper level hallway outside of the multi-purpose room including the 1992 building dedication of the current Marshfield Area YMCA facility. The focus on history will reunite former board members, volunteers and long-time members and staff who will share their stories. If you have a special story or memory to share, please submit to, Marketing & Development Director.
With over 10,000 members and program participants, the Y is encouraging the community to join during this special year and discover the over 100 weekly programs, classes and opportunities the Y provides community youth, adults and families. As a community nonprofit, the Y prides itself on being much more than a fitness center. Dedicated to improving the quality of life, the Y provides financial assistance to those who need it with the total community benefit of over $309,000 in 2015 through financial subsidy and community support.
The year-long celebration will feature perks and fun for current members with family events, member initiatives and new programs planned throughout the year with a community event scheduled for fall 2016.
On Monday, June 20, 2016, the Marshfield Area YMCA celebrated its 30-Year Anniversary with a Member Appreciation Carnival. Thank you to all who joined us for our cookout and family activities. Photos of the event can be found on our Facebook page.
